Hello! This is the message forum to ask questions to GMAC, the makers of the GMAT exam. Unfortunately, we cannot help you with individual practice questions. Please re-post these questions in one of the main message boards, where I am sure other students and tutors will be glad to help you. Good luck in your studies!

IMO C ..here is why

Art museums do not usually think of their collections as capital or consider the interest income that would be generated if a portion of the capital would have been invested in another form.
(A) be generated if a portion of the capital would have been

would is never used in if clause, it is rather used in then clause.
OUT

(B) have been generated if a portion of the capital would have been

would is never used in if clause, it is rather used in then clause.
OUT

(C) be generated if a portion of the capital were - Correct

(D) be generated if a portion of the capital was

were is more suitable than was in if clause because of subjunctive mood.
OUT

(E) be generated if a portion of the capital had been

Past perfect is incorrect here..as it is used when we have two tenses in past.
OUT
